FTTP Time to celebrate


[link to this post]
 
After 20 years of snail pace internet at 1Mbps struggling with anything regarding streaming or similar yesterday finally brought me from the worst to the very best in internet FTTP.

I was happy to take up the offer in the Black Friday sales from my ISP BT with 3 months free and zero setup charge so here I am in the twentieth century.

I went from this terrible speed....

To this incredible blistering speed in2 hours install time.

Our build was very slow with countless problems regarding road closures > new poles fitting > blocked ducts and lots more problems but finally happy now it's arrived.

Fast forward to setting up my BQM (wrong forum I know) but while I'm here I may as well ask does this look ok.?

Congrats!

The BQM is fine. The yellow line is 99th percentile latency, i.e. 1 in 100 packets take this long. You're bound to see such variability during large file uploads and downloads, especially during speed tests - I guess you're doing a few of those at the moment smile

If you see substantial yellow during times when you're sure the line is idle, then you might investigate further. Otherwise, as long as the blue (average latency) stays close to the green, and you don't see any red (dropped packets), you're good.

I think it would be useful if the BQM gave some other percentiles too, say 90th and 75th.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke. You have been extremely patient over the last couple of years.

Really hope you enjoy the extra speed smile

The best bit is that once its running it just sits there and keeps working.

2 bits of downtime in 3 months...

30 minutes when someone was working in a chamber just up the road, was windy and had assumed a tree had fell onto overhead so spotted them when checking for a fallen tree.

2 minutes last night when FTTP was still up but BT smart hub decided to restart itself.

Have found that things like twitch are really limited in the upload speed options, but do stream at 10 Mbps while playing online and even done Stadia Pro 50 Mbps stream incoming while broadcasting out to twitch.

Welcome to the club.

Think I’ve had mine about two years now, after six years of pushing for anything better than a slow ADSL service.
